Flo was a friend from Chicago and a wonderful queer/trans artist, who has been living and working in Jacmel as the director of FOSAJ, a non-profit art center. these are the last photos that i have of him, taken a couple weeks ago by Zackary Drucker during the filming of Oakie Treadwell's adaptation of Kathy Acker goes to Haiti... Flo was a really amazing generous extremely talented person, who will live in my memory forever. i especially like think of the beautiful iconic inflated television that he contributed to Pilot TV back in 2004.
if you want to support Haiti relief effort there is an important post on ENOUGH about organizations doing good aid work that we should support.
i think what's important to note here is that the problem of distributing resources is always fraught with racism and corporatism... even in LA, on the small level that I've been working within the LETSGO LIBERATION L(e)G(a)L group - I see how difficult and rare it is to create situations where resources are able to be mobilized in a critical way. so here it takes like 10 minutes of your time to read up on more community-based radically concious orgs, and take yr pick!
